Football fans on the market for an Xbox One may want to consider waiting a few weeks to pick up the console, as a new bundle centered around Madden is set to launch next month.

Announced today, the bundle consists of a 1TB system, a digital copy of Madden NFL 16, and a year-long subscription to EA Access for $400. Provided you're interested in Madden, that's a solid deal -- you're getting a new $60 game and a $30 subscription for the same price the 1TB system normally costs with a copy of Halo: The Master Chief Collection.


The bundle launches on August 18, a week before Madden 16 will be available. You'll need to wait until August 25 for the game to be playable, though the included EA Access subscription offers early access to EA games, still allowing you to play Madden five days early. It also gets you unlimited access to a library of solid EA games like Battlefield 4, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, and Titanfall as long as you remain a member.

The 1 TB model of Xbox One was launched just last month. In addition to offering twice as much internal storage space as the original model, it comes with a new version of the Xbox One controller equipped with a 3.5mm headset jack. Mind you, this is not the totally revamped, customizable $150 controller.

You can pick up the new Xbox One bundle at Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and Microsoft Store (though that listing doesn't appear to be live yet). Other Xbox One bundles are also on the way, including Gears of War: Ultimate Edition and Forza 6 ones.
